San Francisco, CA, Day Off

17.2.08 San Francisco, Välipäivä

“If you going to San Francisco..” ja niinkuin laulu sanoo..auringonkukat hiuksissa. Meillä oli oikein leppoisa vapaa-päivä. Päästiin suihkuunkin..Käveltiin rantsuun shoppailemaan. Nähtiin Alcatrazin vankilasaari ja käytiin syömässä Hard Rock Cafessa. Merileijonatkin siinä pötköttelivät, niin kuin tapoihin täällä kuuluu. Täällä on yhtä paljon ylämäkiä, kuin alamäkiä. Vaikka välillä tuntuu, että ylämäkiä olis enemmän. Nähtiin myös maailman mutkittelevin tie, Crookedest Street. Tuli tehtyä oikein kunnon kävelyreissu, ihan kunnon turistimeiningillä. Porukkaa oli liikkeellä ja paljon, täällä on joku President´s Day pyhä, tai joku. Yleensä täällä ihmiset ajavat autolla joka paikkaan, mutta nyt tuntui, että kaikki olivat ”jalkautuneet”..No kai sitä kerran vuodessa voi vähän jaloitellakin...

02/17/08 San Francisco, Day Off

”If you´re going to San Francisco...”as the song tells. Sun flowers in your hair…We had a very relaxing day off. First we showered a little bit and then we walked to the beach. We saw Alcatraz prison island and ate at the Hard Rock Café. We did some shopping. Sea lions were taking it easy also…There´s a lot of ups and downs in this city. Occationally it feels like there´s more ups than downs…Also, we checked out the crookedest street. It was sick..We had fun like real tourists! There were a lot of people just hanging around. I think it was because of this President´s day. It´s a some kind of holiday here. Usually in this country people are driving to be somewhere. Now it seemed a lot of people had leave their cars at home and were by foot. I think it´s ok to do that once a year…
